Paul and Lulu Hilliard University Art Museum

​This Art Museum at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette is located at the gateway to the main campus, facing a sculpture garden and a Louisiana Plantation Home reproduction by noted architect A. Hays Town. The building exterior is composed of a glazed glass curtain wall which forms a reflective backdrop for the Town structure and presents a sleek flank to visitors entering the museum. The gallery and support spaces are designed to the highest industry standards, with honed Cordosa limestone and clear maple floors that lead through pure white gallery volumes. The museum provides a changing exhibits gallery of 5,000 square feet and two permanent collection galleries within a total pavilion area of over 30,000 square feet.
